CAPCA Members Assist in Homeless Count

Posted in: News

CAPCA members volunteered with the City of Chicago’s point-in-time homeless count during the late night/early morning hours of Jan 22 and 23.  In order to receive federal homeless funding from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, Chicago and the continuum of homeless service providers must demonstrate need by collecting data on how many persons experience homelessness on one given night.  We looked for and interviewed folks spending the night on the streets, with the hope that we can help make a difference by demonstrating the needs for programs to assist these folks.  It was a powerful (and very cold) experience.
